Technology will be incorporated into the astronomy curriculum in relevant ways for each unit studied. The use of technology, websites, and applications will be used for research, collaboration, and presentation.
It is the your responsibility to use all technology in ESS according to the guidelines set up by Coppell High School and Ms. B.
iPads and Earbuds
iPads and earbuds will be used daily in astronomy. You are expected to bring your charged iPads and a set of earbuds to class each day. No cell phones will be allowed in class for the use of schoolwork. Laptops will not be allowed as a replacement for the iPads, as several iPad apps will be used throughout the course. If laptops are needed, they will be supplied by Ms. B for the class.
Discovering the Universe - Starry Night
Approximately 20 percent of class time will be devoted to exploring the night sky through Starry Night labs using laptops assigned to our class. If you miss class time during Starry Night work days, you will be required to make up your work before or after school, by making an appointment with Ms. B, unless other arrangements are made.
